SOURCE: Front struts replacement

Jack up and secure front end of your vehicle,Take off two front wheels. Loosen to bolt on the bottom of struts (Its a bolt and nut). Remove clip that holds brake hose on to strut and remove hose. DO NOT OPEN BRAKE LINE OR DISCONNECT FROM CALIPER. Remove bolts and remove bottom of strut from knuckle/Hub assembly. Then loosen nuts on strut tower( on top of fender inside hood) (3) nuts, mark exact locations of each nut on strut mount area on upper fender weld. Make sure to hold strut on the bottom so it doesn't drop down on caliper and knuckle or on you possibly.YOU WILL NEED A SPRING COMPRESSOR to compress spring so you can take struts off. MAKE SURE THAT SPRING IN COMPRESSED/SQUEEZED WITH A STRUT COMPRESSOR. Then loose center nut on strut tower(may be covered with a circular rubber cover) If nut spin around with out getting loose use vise grips to hold strut rod ONLY TO REMOVE STRUT NOT TO INSTALL. if you use vise grips to install it will damage strut. When nut is off, remove strut and reinstall new one transfer all rubber boots and cushions from old strut. Good Luck thanks for using FIX-YA.com contact me if you need more help.

On my 2004 Jetta 1,8T the brakes are starting to get hard. Taking s little more pressure on the brake pedal to stop the car. What could be causing this??? Thanks


The most likely cause is loss of power assistance to the braking system which means you will need to apply increased brake pressure to compensate for the loss of assistance.

The problem will be with the brake servo assist. It is possible there is a leak in the brake servo assist system, which reduces the vacuum, so you are not getting sufficient mechanical assistance when applying the brakes.

It is unwise to be driving the car with this condition. If you lose all power assistance to the brakes, which could easily occur with this fault, the pedal will become very hard, you will need to apply very high pedal pressure and the vehicle will be very difficult to stop. You need to take the car to a VW dealer for service or to a competent brake specialist in your area to inspect the system and rectify the fault.

VW did a recall on some earlier year models for a leaking brake servo and I understand the problem was a faulty vacuum hose which would fail and leak. I am not aware of any recall for this item on later models like your 2004 vehicle.

All the best.

I have a 2004 Jetta with 90,000+ miles on it. I have been told I need new shocks and struts by my mechanic. How do I know for sure that I need one or both without getting a second opinion? Is...


90,000 miles is not an uncommon mileage to replace the struts and shocks. If the shocks are leaking oil, or the car doesn't ride well, that is a good sign of needing replaced. You can also push down on the front or rearend, if it bounces up and down more than once, that would be another sign that it's time to replace them.

I have a 2004 vw jetta, replaced the front and rear brakes and now, I have no brakes at all. Could you help.


This sounds like a fluid issue. Be replacing brakes, do you mean the pads, or the slave units (calipers)? you will need to bleed the brakes.

How do i replace my front wheel bearings on my 1997 vw jetta


You'll need to remove wheel hub assembly. Disconnect from the strut and lower ball joint, unbolt the brake caliper, carrier and rotor. Press out the wheel hub, remove the retaining clips in the assembly and press out the old bearing.

How to change Front shocks on a jetta


You'll need to unbolt the top of the strut and the bottom of the strut at the steering knuckle. You'll need a spring compressor to compress the spring before seperating the strut from the strut mount and spring. You may want to replace the strut mount also. MAKE SURE THE SPRING IS COMPRESSED ENOUGH BEFORE REMOVING THE TOP STRUT MOUNT!!!!
